Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway
The university’s root goes back to 1760 with the foundation of Det Trondhiemske Selskab (Trondheim Academy). A merger in 2016 made NTNU Norway’s largest single university. NTNU is an international oriented university with headquarters in Trondheim and campuses in Gjøvik and Ålesund.
There is a great need for more knowledge about nature’s diversity, relationships and mechanisms in order to understand life on Earth. The Department of Biology (IBI) contributes with research and teaching to increase our knowledge of nature at all levels, from genes to ecosystems.
We prioritize global challenges within: climate, biodiversity, pollution and sustainable utilization of natural resources.
